In Northern Ireland (it was stated on BBC News), there have been 3,500 deaths in 3 decades. Made me work out the approximate death and injury toll in 3 decades on UK roads (I’ll research the exact figures anon). Deaths: 90,000. Life-damaging injuries: 700,000. And this is peacetime! Do the media give the subject proportionate airtime (despite my efforts at pitching)? Do pigs drive?
